An Oral History of Islam in Pittsburgh
Time is spent to examine the contributions of Dr. Yousef Khan, a man largely responsible for migrating members of Pittsburgh's Moorish Science Temple to a more traditional Islam. Additionally, the film looks at the Nation of Islam's relationship in Pittsburgh, including frequent visits by Malcolm X, and the nation's evolution toward a more traditional Islam.
Finally, the film moves to the 70's and early 80's, when immigrant Muslims began to intermingle with indigenous Muslims and form their own communities. Also, time is spent to look at Muslims' current situation in Pittsburgh and search for solutions to improve the Muslim community.
